Jay Berkenbilt (of the Debian project) expressed the opinion that it 
is ABI compatible with 3.8.2, that he had done testing in Debian 
experimental, and was planning to incorporate the code used to produce 
3.9.0 into Debian.

Several changes since the 3.9.0Beta release were made with the 
objective that 3.9.0 be ABI compatible with 3.8.2.  As with anything 
else related to free software, there are no No Guarantees.  No one 
here gets paid enough to offer such guarantees.
